In 1968, Robert Walsh, Arthur Schmidt, and George Claytor were working at the Ashland Oil Company after the acquisition of the small chemical distributor where they were employed. Encouraged by customers and suppliers to form an independent regional distribution company of their own, the three St. Louis businessmen were fortunate to have several suppliers align with them — and Walsh & Associates, Inc. was born.

Through the years, we’ve expanded dramatically with regional offices in Kansas City, Denver, Memphis, Nashville, Salt Lake City, Dallas, Detroit, Kalamazoo, Houston and Chicago. Nationwide, our sales and administrative support personnel average 20+ years of industry experience and are ready to bring you new and innovative solutions to meet the challenges of a changing world.
